World First C-1000 Carbon Cantilever in Moving Coil Cartridge
The ZYX Ultimate series (100, Airy, 4D, OMEGA and DYNAMIC) use a carbon cantilever for the very first time in a moving coil cartridge. The carbon rod is made from 1000 pieces of composite carbon fibre, hence the name C-1000 carbon cantilever.
This composite carbon fibre is more rigid than aluminium, iron and titanium. In addition, its specific gravity is just half that of boron. Therefore we can be sure that the C-1000 carbon cantilever is the ultimate and ideal cantilever material for analogue record playback.
The carbon cantilever gives us the widest frequency range and superior tracking performance. A further major benefit is that the mechanical sound signal picked up at the stylus can travel through to the coil in a straight and direct fashion by way of the 1000 pieces of mechanical carbon lines. This ensures that reflected, repeated or modulated mechanical sound signals are completely absent.
The overall result is that you will enjoy the finest, most natural, most dynamic and true to source sound that you have ever experienced.
Double Structure Body
By combining non-metallic materials in the construction of the body, the resonance occurring on the body’s surface is excluded from influencing the generator system. An additional advantage is that this method of construction is both light and rigid.
High-speed reproduction engine (magnetic circuit)
This circuit is specially processed to null magnetic resistance within the magnetic gap and enables high-speed power generation against signals over entire bandwidth straightly without time delay.
The stylus used Ultimate series has the edges of the diamond shank set parallel to the sides of the cantilever. Using this type of stylus, the hardest axis of the crystal is aligned to act as the contact point with the record groove. This gives stable and smooth tracing and produces a very refined sound, with the additional benefit of giving the stylus an extended lifetime 2000 hours. The stylus is of the Micro-ridge type, which was originally developed in Japan and offers the highest performance. The contact radius is always 3μm by the ridge made with 6μm thickness.
Pure 6N OFC Crystal Copper Wire Generator Coils
This perfect crystal copper wire produced by a special process, in order to achieve an even sound balance across the entire audible range.
Pure Silver Wire Generator Coils
As the silver has the best conductivity, This 5-nine silver wire made in the USA can easily sound extended high range smoothly and transparent mid and low range with excellent sound quality.
Pure Gold Wire Generator Coils
This K24 gold wire is made in the USA. Why are the sounds so real, natural and smooth over the whole range? There is no colouration at the sound at all. So you will be able to feel real piano, strings and vocal sounds just in front of you.
A choice of wire is available when ordering – see above.
TB, TB2, SB and SB2 headshells can be included when ordering.
